World Heart Day: Move with the Mayor

World Heart Day is the world’s largest intervention against cardiovascular disease. However, it is only one day, and it takes more than a day to change behavior. That’s why the National Forum leveraged World Heart Day to create the Move with the Mayor Challenge, a mayor-led campaign that encourages Americans to take control of their cardiovascular health through walking.
Counter Cholesterol

Counter Cholesterol

Approximately 1 in 3 American adults has a cholesterol level that is too high for them. Worse, only about half of them have it under control. See how we're helping change that.

The National Forum is where successful collaborations happen.

This initiative’s overall goals are to address the increasingly important topic of patient access in the cardiovascular space. More specifically, it: 

  • Identifies leading access challenges faced by patients with cardiovascular disease
  • Brings together multiple stakeholders for dialogue to better understand both challenges and any best practices that exist
  • Develops collaborative solutions that can support patients and reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease

Counter Cholesterol

The effect of high cholesterol touches much more than the health of one heart alone - it affects the lives of your family, friends and community. To combat the effects of high cholesterol, the National Forum created Counter Cholesterol to raise awareness about the risk high cholesterol poses to women and their families.
